Hey guys,

 

My cell phone is getting turned off some time today. What wifi calling apps would any of you recommend so I can keep in touch with the outside world?

Since this program is used to convert protected EBooks, it's usage is most
likely not legal and I cannot allow it to be promoted on the list.

In short, no.
I use Codex: http://jscholes.net/project/codex/ to convert my
purchased Kindle books to another format (ePub, MOBI, etc.) then use
any other program to read them. QRead, FSReader, any old web browser
and so on.
The only reason I have Kindle for PC on my computers (Win 7 and Win
10) is to be able to download my purchased content and thus have
access to it for the conversion process.

GSM equals Global System for Mobile Communications; popular
largely in Europe and other parts of the world, it has made
inroads here in the United States and has gained quite a bit
of grounds with TMobile and AT&T as the leading adoptors.
Some Verizon phones support both GSM and CDMA technologies
and they are thus referred to as world phones. GSM
technology, unlike CDMA, uses the SIM card.

With GSM, if the phone is unlocked, moving a phone number
from one phone to another is analogous to a plug-&-play in
that one can take out a SIM card from one phone and insert
into another and you'll have service instantly.
One can't do this with CDMA phones!

Ann, I can tell you a tip that I learned from another person
on the list. If you want a contact's information, ask Voice
Command. Also, to read text messages, open Inbox and press
Speaker. Maybe you will have some tips to share. I'm glad
you liked the phone.

It's more so the range of frequencies or supported networks that the device in question has access to that will determine weather or not you can take the device from carrier to carrier. There are carriers, such as sprint that tend to be locked down more, basically do to them using a network that hardly anyone else uses. It's carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile that use the more widely used GSM type network, which also seems to be the case in other parts of the world too.

If I remember correctly, these days, a lot of the device providers are adding in the hardware to make them work on both sprint/verizon and AT&T supported networks, such as adding a GSM slot, even on non-GSM supported providers, but this wasn't always the case. These days, it's also necessary to make sure the device in question is going to have the right sized GSM slot, if that's what's being used and it needs to be unlocked as well.

It's been quite some time since I refreshed myself on the networks and how it all works, so please forgive for the lack of detail and where I may be slightly incorrect. :) It should be enough to get a basic grasp on how it works though.
Take care.

Ann,

In considering replacement phones, if I had gone with another flip, I
was considering the following, which I will let you have the pleasure
of investigating, if you so desire. In handling this phone, it
seemed very sturdy and had buttons, very nice, noticeable buttons.
:)


DuraXV+ by Kyocera

<http://www.verizonwireless.com/basic-phones/kyocera-duraxv-plus/?mlc
id=TG%7Carticle%7Cclick-through%7Carticle-body%7C275>

DuraXV+ by Kyocera

The DuraXV+ by Kyocera is a tough, dependable basic phone. Designed
to meet military standards for durability, this rugged flip phone can
handle water, dust, drops, extreme temps and generally harsh
environments. You can easily view the screen in sunlight, use the
keypad with gloves on and with Smart Sonic Receiver, you can hear
calls clearly when things around you get noisy.

Regards,

Nancy

Re: Flip Phone

I don't know.  My candy bar phone, which is not a flip phone but in terms of performance and abilities is equivalent, uses T Mobile.  But it is capable of working on the AT&T network.  But T Mobile only allows it to make emergency calls on that network if necessary.  I very much like this phone and if I were going to switch networks, I would inquire if it is compatible and can be switched.  I know it can't work with Verizon because that is an incompatible network.  But I wouldn't assume that it couldn't  be switched to AT&T.
